    Are you referring to the slide area? If so, I've ridden/cleaned it several times after it was cleaned up. But that doesn't last long. That hillside is crumbling before our eyes.

    Yep, IME the repair to the slides there doesn't last for more than a few days.

    Well written. Those of us mountain bikers who push the limit on safety, who are "thrill seekers", live those exact words to some extent.

    Gee appears to have no regard for his own well being. Witness his Hardline crash of two years ago, or his helicopter ride out of Rampage this year.

    But I have spoken with him personally and was only 33 seconds slower than him in a Fontana DH in 2011! So I bask in his reflected glory!

    Fun fact: For those that recall that Fontana DH usually has a separate course for Pro/Expert than for Sport/Beginner, this was one rare race that everyone was on the same (fairly tame) course. Rachel was in a sling, but Gee raced, and I think Dan did too. Danny MacAskill tried racing, but fell on a two foot drop and did his shoulder on a practice run.

    He survived a helicopter ride out, I survived a helicopter ride out. Didn't you survive one, too? Helicopter rides out are overrated.
